6. The third and last Letter of the second Word, also the third Letter of the third Word, are the same with the second Letter of the first Word; hence the Letters will stand thus, Soli Deo Glo * i *. 7. The Sum of the Indices of the fourth Letter of the third Word, and the fixth or last Letter of the fame Word, being added to their Product is 35; and the Difference of their Squares is 288; the Index of the last Letter being the least. Put a = the greater, and e= the lesser Index, as before. Then 11ac + a +=3} by the Data. And 2a a ie= 288 a 3ae te= 35 30+144 = 35, for exa+1=aito ati 1225 - 700 taa 49_1 sle e = a a +24+1 2 + 5 Gaa=288+ 1225 - 700 taa aa + 2a +1 6 xa a &c. 7 +2 a taa = 288 a +576 + 288 1+1225 — 700 taa This last Equation being resolved according to the Method which shall be thewed in the next Chapter, it will be a = 17 it's Letter ; and from the 4th Stepe= 35 – a =1, the Index of a +I the Letter a. Then these two Letters being placed according to the Data above, are all that are required by the Enigma to compleat these Words. СНАР. Х. The Solution of adfected Equations in Numbers." BEFORE we proceed to the Solution of Adfected Equations, it may not be amiss ta shew the Investigation (or Invention) of those Theorems' or Rules for extracting the Roots of Simple Powers, made use of in Chapter 11. Part 1. I shall here make Choice of the fame Letters to represent the Numbers both given and fought in my Compendium of Algebra., G, always denote the given Resolvend. Viz. Let { as may be, whether it be greater or less. { the unknown Part of the Root fought by which r is to be either increased or decreased. Then ifr be any Number less than the true Root, it will be rtes the Root sought. But if , be taken greater than the true Root, it will then berce= the Root fought. And put D for the Dividend that is produced from G, after it is lefened and divided by r, &c. (into the Co-ëfficients of Adfected Equations) according as the Nature of the Root requires. These Things being premised, we may proceed to raising the Theorems. SECT. I. 1. FOR the Square Root, viz. a a=G. Quære a.

But, as I have already faid, Page 134, those Extractions may be very well performed by two Extractions of the Square Root. Vide Example, Page 135. IV. To extract the Surfolid Root, viz. a'=G. Quære a. If y be taken less than just, then r te=a, as before, and G-75 = D, which gives this Theorem By this Theorem the Sursolid Root, Example 1. Page 136, is extracted. But if r be taken greater than just; then ri=a, and g3 D = D, which gives this Theorem 5 m this last Theorem the Example in Page 137 is performed. I presume it needless to pursue the raising of those Theorems, for extracting the Roots of Simple Powers, any further; because the Method of doing it is general, how high soever they are; and therefore it may be easily understood by what is already done. 573 3 SECT. 2. Notwithstanding I have already shewed the Solution of Qua dratick Equations, two several Ways, viz. by casting off the lowest Term; and by compleating the Square, vide Section 2. Page 195, Sc. Yet it may not be amiss to shew, how those Equations may be resolved into Numbers by this universal Method of continued Series; wherein, if the first r be taken equal to the first true Root, or fingle Side of the Resolvend; and every single Value of e (as it becomes found) be still added to it, for a new r, then those Roots may be extracted without repeating a, fecond Operation, as before in the fingle Powers.

I think it needless to trouble the Reader with the Work of these. two Theorems in Numbers; because if the last Example of Case 1, be understood, the other will be easy. Not but that the Method of compleating the Square is very ready and easy, as you may observe by the Work in several Questions of this Chapter. SECT. 3.
